1. McCrea, Austin. Managerial Fit, Gender (In)Congruity, and Performance: Evidence from US Nursing Homes.

Degree: MA, Political Science, 2018, Texas A&M University

Managerial fit focuses on the congruence between managers’ values, preferences, and goals with their organizational environments. While a wealth of literature finds evidence that managerial characteristics play an important role in organizational performance, there are still characteristics which are underexplored. An important omission from this literature, and the focus of the study, is the impact of gender as a dimension of managerial fit. The sex of the manager is a salient dimension in how subordinates perceive managerial strategies and organizational missions. By using US Nursing Home data, I explore gender differences in two key managerial functions—power sharing and environmental management. Literature from several fields finds differences between men and women in certain behavioral traits and I explore if and how these traits map onto gendered differences in management and their implications for organizational performance. The results suggest that male managers must adopt strategies congruent with the feminine disposition of the organization in order to be successful. Male managers who emphasize power sharing find positive effects on performance while male managers who emphasize environmental management harm performance.

2. Cheon, Ohbet. Management and Performance in U.S. Healthcare Institutions: Do Sector-Differences Matter?.

Degree: 2016, Texas A&M University

This dissertation includes three essays that focus on a number of central themes in public management and performance. Using American hospitals and nursing homes, I explore how sector-differences matter in healthcare service delivery. I propose theoretical frameworks on how managers respond to performance information in the cyclical process and how they employ the information in their managerial decisions. The three essays explore how public, nonprofit, and for-profit organizations perform differently in various performance dimensions, and how sector-differences leverage the ways of utilizing performance information on managerial decisions, networking and strategy. The first essay, Do Public Hospitals Outperform Nonprofit and For-profit Hospitals?, indicates that sector-differences matter in organizational performance where a trade-off relationship exists. The second essay, Help! I Need Somebody, provides evidence that managers strategically choose networking nodes in response to performance information. The third essay, Looking for Strategy in All the Wrong Places, reveals that performance information shapes managerial strategy, either prospecting or defending, but the impact is contingent on sectors. The findings contribute to public management literature that even if organizations have similar functions, tasks, rules and clients, sector-differences influence managerial decisions related to outcomes. Advisors/Committee Members: Meier, Kenneth J (advisor), Teodoro, Manuel P (committee member), Whitten, Guy D (committee member), Paarlberg, Laurie E (committee member).
